Hot Investment Opportunities for Literary Geeks


| 11/21/2007 3:40:48 PM


Next time you read a newly-released, good contemporary novel, buy two. Or three. Then, years later, when the book becomes a modern classic, beloved by generations of literati, you can sell your precious mint-condition first editions and buy yourself nice things. That’s the plan of hypermodern book collectors anyway. Think of it as investing, but for people who know more about William Vollmann than bonds and dividends. (Me, I prefer my stable of hyper-volatile penny stocks. Hello, bankruptcy!) Read more about collecting hypermodern literature in Anne Trubek’s article in Good Magazine.
